Oz Comic-Con Fashion Show - Melbourne
The Oz Comic-Con Fashion Show is a celebration of aspiring designers that unleash their inner geek in the form of couture fashion and everyday attire. This event showcases fashion inspired by popular culture or individual characters to create a unique look for your everyday geek!
This event is ideal for aspiring designers with a spark for popular culture and is open to any amateur designer (Any professionals or companies will not be eligible to enter). Entrants will be asked to create their own unique design and showcase it on the runway at Oz Comic-Con!
What can I expect?
